      Esther a homeschool mom in Mid-Michigan says

      Just adding to Mark’s info above: If you have (3) 1.00/2 Kraft American cheese sliced coupons, you can get 6 pkgs of cheese for $7.02 or $4.02 (if your store doubles $1 cpns.) AND you will get $6.00 off your beef :)
      They have the 80% lean ground beef (value pack) on sale for $1.95/lb with a limit of 3 pkgs. I was able to use my Meijer $10.00 Kraft catalina coupon to make my total oop pretty low and got another coupon back.
      So, now I’m stocked up on sliced cheese and beef from VG’s.

    Marianne says

    I went to the Burton VG’s (I don’t normally shop there) and I was surprised they doubled all my q’s, even the ones that say dnd. That meant free Baileys, free cheese, cheap Dannon yogurt, cheap ground beef. I went back the next day and repeated the same thing.
